The City of Tampa and the Tampa Police Department are committed to the safety of all residents and visitors regardless of race, color, ancestry, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, age or disability. As such, we are committed to tackling crimes that target specific demographics that are at a higher risk to be victimized.
The mission of the TPD Safe Place Initiative is to provide the community with easily accessible safety information and safe places throughout the city they can turn to if they are the victims of crime.
Through the Safe Place Initiative, TPD will provide decals to City facilities, schools, local businesses and other organizations for those entities to post as a symbol of safety for the victims of hate crime.
Anyone who seeks solace in a Safe Place location can be assured that if they are the victim of a crime, police will promptly be called.
